Preparedness

Neither Troll nor myself are especially paranoid...but we've been talking about (in light of recent events) emergency preparedness or lack thereof. We've decided, among other things, to fill a few of our empty bottled water jugs (5 gals each) with tap water, and just keep them on hand in addition to the regular bottled water delivery we get. We're also going to be looking into emergency generators and the like...and see how difficult/expensive it would be for us to live off-grid, electrically speaking.

Food is unlikely to be an issue for us because I always shop and stock my kitchen as if a siege were imminent. It's just a thing...I've done it for as long as I can remember. We're both prone to keeping lots of varied first-aid stuff around the house. We have a small camp stove & plenty of propane to use in it.

I'm curious...how prepared are you?
